If you paid income tax to another state, you may be eligible for a credit against your Kansas tax liability. If you had income from a state that has no state income tax, make no entry.
If you are eligible for a tax credit paid to another state, the credit amount cannot exceed the tax liability shown on the other state's tax return. The tax liability is NOT the amount of tax withheld for the other state (amount shown on W-2).
The program will automatically calculate this credit for your Resident Kansas return if you have a Non-Resident return for another state created on your account. If you have a Part-Year return created, you will need to fill in the information if required.
Can I claim the credit?
If you are a Kansas resident you may claim this credit if:
- Your Kansas Adjusted Gross Income includes income earned in the other state(s), and
- You were required to pay income tax to the other state(s) on that income.
Important—Your credit is NOT the amount of tax withheld in the other state(s); it is determined from the "Worksheet for Residents" that follows. Complete the tax return(s) for the other state(s) before using the worksheet found in the instructions.
If filing as a nonresident of Kansas you may claim this income tax credit if all of the following apply:
- You were a Kansas resident for part of the year;
- Your total income reported to Kansas includes income earned in the other state while you were a Kansas resident;
- You were required to pay taxes on that other state’s income.
